Abstract : A kinetic equation is derived for interacting waves in a weakly nonequilibrium rarefied plasma. The relation between the laminar and turbulent theories of shock waves without collisions in a strong magnetic field is discussed. An estimate of the turbulent width of shock waves is made on the basis of the kinetic equation. (Author)
